Pros:

Good mileage.

Cons:

Mechanical nightmare; if it's not one thing it's another. A 4-year old car should not be in the shop every 2 months!!

Review:

Performance and mechanical headaches galore. I'd rather have a Subaru.

Pros:

Value for money
Basically reliable drivetrain - Sentra won't burn a hole in your pocket
Parts cost reasonable compared to other imports.
Too boring (bar SER) for thieves.

Cons:

Boring (bar SER) bland, economy ha ha me back aches car.

Review:

I've had my 2003 Sentra GXE for 3 years and 4 months now. It's never died or left me stranded anywhere. So basic reliability is good. There have been a few minor problems, a transmission (auto) squeak on the 3rd upshift which was rectified by the dealer. The alternator belt has been noisy from go (chirping sound) and I'm hoping my dealer will agree to a new belt. There is an annoying resonance type rattle the seems to originate from the instrument cowl. All in all fairly minor things. Sentra is an economy car, built in Mexico to help keep sticker price low while offering good feature per feature value compared to the competition. Comfort is reasonable - for about an hour until my back starts to ache. Gas mileage has remained good right through.

Pros:

Good set of features for the money

Cons:

- fuel economy worsens as the car is driven,
used to get 35MPG, I'm lucky to get 27MPG now.
(with regular service and less then 45000
miles)
- fit and finish not up to par to the
competition
(Mazda, Toyota, Honda)
- Made in Mexico in a city that I can't pronounce

Review:

My car does look a little better then the stock sentra as it's the GXE with the luxury package, so it has the mag wheels. I'm disappointed with the number of issues I've had with the car, it had three warranty fixes in the first two years, one issue took about 5 trips to the dealer for them to fix it (replaced fuel pump). Fit and finish could be better as the interior is full of cheap plastic.

Pros:

Handling, peak torque at 2400 rpm

Cons:

ride comfort, fuel consumption

Review:

A well put together, solid enough car. Rear end styling not up to par with other Nissan models. The engine is thirstier then the competition. The interior could use a better grade of plastics. Handling is exceptionally well but comfort is sacrificed.
